Coughing up orange jelly like mucus and head aches

Coughing up orange phlegm . Body is extremely weak. I am always hot. All of my limbs are weak and in pain. Every time I try to take a deep breath it feels like someone had a foot and is pressing down on my chest. My upper back and ribs are cramped and extremely sensitive. And I have a massive head aches to the point were light is painful. Is this a regular sinus infection?

ENT Specialist 's  Response
Dear Athena,it does not seems to be a regular sinus infection . Sinusitis menifest as nasal stuffines,nasal discharge with nasal blockage and headache. In your case the history is more suggest towards a chest infection and I may advise you to take a course of broadspectrum antibiotics if it is a short duration and if you are suffering from a week or so please visit a medicine specilist or a chest specialist immidiately.
